SOUP DISH

Serving Size: 6

Preparation Time (for me a bit longer) 1 hour

Ingredients

1 1/2lb Grouper, Wahoo, or other firm fish

Celery, onion, carrot, and leek, cut rough to make stock

Bay leaf, peppercorns, thyme

1 carrot, large

1 green pepper, large

2 potatoes, large

2 tomatoes, large

1 onion, large

2 stalks celery

4oz butter

4oz flour

3oz tomato paste

2oz original gossling Black Seal rum (of course I do have some here in Majorca)

1x salt and pepper to taste

2oz Sherry peppers (liquid),

or substitute 1 chili

pepper

To a stockpot with 4 qts. water add whole fish plus vegetables and herbs for stock. Bring to a boil, skimming off any scum from surface. Let simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. While it is cooking, dice the rest of the vegetables to 1/2”. Strain and set aside both the stock and the fish. When fish are cool, remove skin and discard, then remove and set aside all meat from fish carcasses. In the cleaned stockpot melt the butter and add the diced vegetables. Sauté over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add flour and stir for about 2 minutes on low heat. Slowly add fish stock, whisking to blend vegetable mixture to a smooth consistency. Bring to a boil and add tomato paste. Reduce heat and let simmer for 45 to 50 minutes. Just before it has cooked for 45 minutes, add fish, sherry peppers, and original Bermuda black seal rum.

Season to taste.
